Need Help Please. Controller Not Working


The SnowMan

Recommended Posts

I've got everything all hooked up and running. mp3 showtime director is working. I have 2 controllers. First one has nothing coming out of it. Second controller is working fine and all channels. Red status light is on solid on 1st controller and still nothing. I ran the hardware utilty and the lights come on. But not now that the sequneces are running?? Can anybody help? Thanks.

And I tried a brand new cat5 cable and still same thing.

I forgot to ad that my initial set up was this: 1 cat 5 from director to non-working controller, and one cat 5 from that controller to the other. The signals are obviously going through the non working controller because the other one is working. Hopefully I'm not confusing you guys!

Not sure if this matters but last night when I ran everything, the last 10-15 seconds of one of my sequences had no lights playing on the house. I figured maybe I forgot to finish the sequence. But when I looked this morning, the sequence is finished to the end. Not sure what's going on with that?

I have a couple questions just to paint a picture that could help one of us help you.

 

What is the model of your controllers?

When you use the hardware utility do they show up as "Unit ID 1 and Unit ID 2"?

Do both units work in the Hardware controller software?

Is your PC connected to the LOR network all the time?

 

If yes,

Do you have the LOR Control panel running on your PC at the same time as the show director is running?

CTB16PCg3 (working)

LOR 160xW Not working

The non working one is not letting me set unit id. Says its unable to locate unit and change address.

Yes, both units work in hardware controller.

PC is not cvonnected all the time. My show runs off an sd card and the mp3 director.

Well I finally figured it out after pulling my hair out, blood pressure sky high, and hours of googling.

The guy I bought the controller from had the unit set to #4 inside the controller on the dial. Set the unit id as 4 on the hardware and low and behold, shes a working!!

Wow what a ride this has been. Now I'd like to at some point figure out how to set it back to number 1?

A HUGE thank you to you who have helped.

Jason.
